Last on the Field


Lyrics: Master Alexander de Seaton            
Music: Leave Her (trad)




Chorus:
Leave now, Johnnny, leave now, Oh leave now, Johnny, leave now;
For the battle is done and the bodies are cold and it's time for us to leave now.
Verses:
I took my sword and I took my shield, leave now Johnny, leave now
But I never took time to quit the field, and it's time for us to leave now.

I gained the bridge and I got some rest, leave now Johnny, leave now
And it's there I held the enemy's best, and it's time for us to leave now

Their swords and shields they thrust at me, leave now Johnny, leave now
But in the time I held, my mates got free, and it's time for us to leave now

I hear my Captain call to me, "Leave now, Johnny, leave now."
As I look down, my body I see, and it's time for us to leave now.
